A Valentine for . . . Charlie Sheen

This is a special edition of Eye Candy Monday. Not all the pictures are pretty.

Remember, Charlie, when you smiled like this?

But you don't smile that way any more. For quite some time, shots of Charlie Sheen show a grim guy wearing a hat and shades.

Word is, you're thinking of getting gold teeth. For fun? Well, maybe . . .
or maybe it's because when you do smile, showing your teeth, you look like this:

Readers may ask why I send a Valentine to a guy who hits women.

This guy has hit women:

I think drugs and alcohol had a lot (I'm not saying everything) to do with why he did. And why you do.
Eminem had the guts to record a song, with Rihanna, called "Love the Way You Lie," that actually examines violence against women. It isn't really as simple an issue as we thought it was. I learned this from an abused wife I tried to help. Now, we've all learned it, from Eminem and Rihanna.

But he had to get better to make an album like Recovery. (Winner of the 2011 Grammy for best Rap Album of the Year)

You're in rehab now, Charlie. You could recover. Here's a guy who looked like he was down for the count, not all that long ago. This is Robert Downey, Jr.'s mug shot. He went to rehab and paid attention. And he did it. Day by day, for ten years now, he has stayed away from the same demons that are killing you.

Now he looks like this.

Charlie, you are the highest paid actor on TV and the star of a hit comedy show, Two and a Half Men that is now in its eighth season. You're number one, man. Except today the last episode that's been shot will air, after which the show goes "on hiatus." It's all up to you, now.
Please get better.

I'm not afraid. To take a stand.
Everybody, come take my hand.
We'll walk this road together.

- Not afraid, from Recovery, by Eminem.

Charlie Sheen, you are not alone.

Love, Madeline

addendum: this just in: Charlie acts weird on sports radio.

Madeline, your compassion is one of your many fine attributes, one that reinforces my love for you.

Beautifully explained, Madeline. I can think of others as undeserving--Mel Gibson springs to mind, and maybe Tom Cruise--but they may be unredeemable.

It's possible Mel could be redeemed if he sobered up but his racism, which was bred into him by his Dad, and the fact that he has his own Roman Catholic church on his own property, is worrisome.
Tom Cruise, the control freak Scientologist, may be the most irredeemable because his demons don't seem to have any relationship with substance abuse.
It's all personality in his case, which may make him the toughest nut to crack. And as Leonard Cohen says, "There's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in."

Which is, of course, different from: There's crack in Charlie Sheen, that's why the light is dim.

Charlie Charlie Charlie - please accept Maddie's valentine wishes and clean yourself up! You don't want to be the butt of Ricky Gervais' (and every late-night-talk-show-host's) humour do you? We want to see you as Charlie Harper, not Charlie Sheen the has-been. Madeline, I hope Charlie reads your blog and pulls himself together. I'm sure your words would inspire him!

nice of you to wish charlie sheen well even though he sounds like a total jerk husband but . . .maybe it was the drugs.

two and a half men was a fun show but I think it had run it's course anyway. it could have no tidy ending -they're men. charlie will be a man whore his whole life, the brother will be snivelling, the mother controlling, and jake apathetic and roberta gets the funniest cynical lines. these characters are not the types to change. hopefully charlie sheen is.

i don't agree with scientology at all, but never saw what was so bad about tom cruise jumping up and down on oprah's couch.

Unfortunately Charlie is like watching a slow moving train wreck unfolding before your eyes. You watch in horror yet don't dare to look away. Wish he would heed your sage advice Madeline, but that may be one f8cked up banana who isn't coming down anytime soon!
